Fix Failed to Install a Dependency Error in Kodi
Kodi is an amazing application for watching videos online. We use in routine and somehow need to install additional plugins to refine its output and efficiency. But, somehow, you may encounter a problem in installing an app or have accounted for a ‘failed to install a dependency’ error. In this post, we will guide you how to fix this error. But, before moving to the tutorial, get to know about the dependency.
How Would You Define Dependency?
Within the Kodi application, there are certain add-ons that depend on other plugins. For example, a plugin that is not a stand-alone tool and not a core part of Kodi requires other applications to run its features. An addon that supports other addons is defined as a dependency.
Let me explain the term dependencies with a practical example. If you install a TV guide plugin that is responsible for collecting Television listings from various online sources and carry forward them to display screen in a list form that is sorted by time. It may show some list timings in AM/PM and others in Hours like some TV shows will be shown as 1600 hours and some at 04:00 PM.
In result, the end result will not be clean and clear. To refine the list display, you may need to install an additional addon for converting time referencing to digits. Now, the TV guide plugin will depend on this additional application to show the harmonized timing of various listing.
